You are correct.  I think Sun was deliberately fuzzy in their
specification of NFS locking in order that they might claim it as a
market differentiation point.. :-)

I may be wrong, but I think that the answer to both of these questions
is an unfortunate "no".  The prolific Ambassador Lambert may have some
back-archives of previous discussions, given that he's been known to
save such things.. :)

I don't know of anything off the top of my head, though I'm sure that
someone else will chime in if they have something in the archives (see
above :).  I do know that such an effort would come as a very welcome
one on several quarters..
